The Night Before Victory

Twas the night before victory, when all through the land,
Our enemies lay quiet, just as we planned.

The ballots were cast by voting with care,
In hopes that our Leader soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Democrats danced in their heads;

And me in my nightgown and cat in my lap,
Had just settled down for a long evening nap.

When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter,
I sprang from my nap like a silly mad hatter.

Straight to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the crest of the new-fallen snow
Shed light on the people standing below.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a man named Obama whose vision was clear.

With a spry fellow partner, so lively and quick,
(No, it wasn’t the one who makes us all sick!)

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
We smiled and we cheered and we called them by name:

Warren Buffett, Donna Brazile and Hillary too,
Ed Kennedy, Al Gore and now Colin Powell.

To the top of the Mountain, then top of the world,
We watched ever proudly as the story unfurled

Like dry leaves before cold winds they do fly,
When met with obstacles, they mount to the sky.

So up to the moon the coursers they flew
With hearts full of hope, and the courage they knew.

And then, with a twinkling, I heard to my right
The dancing and singing of moose in the night.

They were dressed all in fur, from their head to their feet,
And their coats were all shiny in the light from the street.

A look in the eye and a twist of the head
Soon let me know we have nothing to dread;

Imagine my heart as I heard them exclaim,
No Palin, no whal’in and no John McSame!

And here’s what they said as they strolled out of sight:

Victory for all and for all a good night!

Keith Olbermann speaks for us and our fears of the Right

A special report from Keith Olbermann discussing the McCain campaign. He points out the true and verifiable facts that supporters at the McCain rallies have been promoting a theme of disrespect, hatred and violence towards Barack Obama. It is a disgrace and hasn’t been seen since the years when racism was accepted as legitimate public policy.

At the same time, the rallies at the Obama campaign show Obama quickly and effectively silencing simple boo’s at the mention of McCain.

Smears galvanizes Obama supporters

Every smear promoted against Barack Obama only galvanizes his supporters.  What the McCain campaign does not understand is that Barack Obama represents every American who ever felt marginalized.

Every woman who was been raped.  Every woman that survived breast cancer.  Every man and woman who
had to work 2 and 3 jobs to make ends meet.  Every soldier who went to Iraq and knew it was wrong and had to do it anyway.  Every African-American who was subject to racism (and that would be every black person in America). Every Hispanic who was subject to prejudice.  Every child who was ostracized
or alienated for being “different,” every elderly person made to feel obsolete and unimportant, every disabled person made to feel deficient and anyone else who was marginalized by the minority ruling class:  the 1% of predominantly white, male Americans who control most of the country’s wealth
and therefore most of the power.

In the words of Mahatma Ghandi, every tyrant who ever ruled has always fallen.  They are consumed by their own hatred.  So when the Republicans smear Obama, it is GOOD for the Obama campaign. It just makes everyone in his campaign work that much harder.  In fact, we should thank the Republicans for handing him this election.

And THAT, my friend, is why Obama will win.  Just look at history and reflect upon the energy of this campaign.  It is born from the negative energy that produced the opposition:  prejudice, murder, hatred, hundreds of years of discrimination and violence.  Now all Americans who were victimized by our fear and stupidity have a leader.

Yes, there is danger, because the minority ruling class is fearful and does not want to lose power.  However,
just like Ghandi, King, and Bobby Kennedy before him, Obama will not lose
because he has the spirit of all those leaders within him.
